 Kelly chose to have her bouquet pressed and preserved on a 
"barely pink" background and in an 11x14" antique white frame!

Kelly, I loved preserving your wedding flowers! ~Annie, Pressed Garden

I love you forever...

Sometimes the stories of my customers really move me...

Marissa and her mom brought these roses to me for preservation.
When her dad was really sick, he went to the flower shop and 
ordered a dozen roses to be delivered to his daughter each month
after his death, for one year.  This was the last bouquet.
 Marissa wanted a butterfly made from her roses and a few rose buds
fashioned to decorate her dad's card at the bottom
The flowers are mounted on a clear blue background and in
an 11x14" barnwood frame.
I'd be lying, if I said that this order didn't make me cry.  It did.
What a loving gesture!
A heart-shaped beveled glass ornament was made from left over petals.
Thank you, Marissa, for the pleasure of preserving your flowers.
Sometimes flowers are worth more than the cost of them.
Sometimes they just need to last forever. ~Annie

Valentines Day Remembrance

We often do not know what a day will bring.  My heart has been
profoundly touched by this story.

This is why I preserve flowers....because sometimes the
flowers we receive are too precious to just let turn to dust.

These are Valentines Day Flowers 
Roses, Alstromeria, Sweet William, Dyed Hydrangea,
Dyed Statice and a few different leaves.
Two days later, the giver of the flowers, the husband, passed away.
The coworkers of the wife brought the flowers to me for preservation.

I wept as I pressed the flowers, but am very happy that I had the privilege of 
preserving them so that she is able to have them forever.
The flowers are presented on an ivory background
and in an 8x10" barnwood frame.
When I came across these heart shaped petals down inside the roses, 
I was thrilled and knew they would be part of the design! 

A Rose Petal Pendant was made from one of the perfect rose petals.
Thank you, Andrea, for the honor and the pleasure of preserving these precious
flowers for your friend. ~Annie, Pressed Garden
